Fuji RAF and Leica DNG files and light table

Post by Alfons » 29 Aug 21 11:07

Fuji RAF and Leica DNG files are displayed in the light table as their previews only. Is this a bug or by design or is this a result of a wrong setting?

Thanks,
Alfons

In the meantime I noticed that this problem was already discussed for DNG files quite a while ago. But obviously it was never fixed.

Perhaps Hert can comment on this.

Thanks

Psu always loads the preview where available (Psu is not a raw developer). Only when no, or a tiny preview is found then Psu develops the RAW.
If you make your own DNG files with a RAW developer tool then make sure to select the option to add a full size preview.

In the past I was shooting Nikon NEF files. They can be loaded as full-size images in the viewer if the respective option is selected. I was surprised that this is not the case for Leica DNG (which is their native file type) and Fuji RAF files. For those files the light table is not useful to evaluate the image quality as the previews are displayed only. This is in particular a problem with high resolution monitors (4K and higher).

I did not know that. In the past I used the light table for culling NEFs. This was part of my established workflow. Now it is not possible anymore with my preferred RAFs and DNGs ...

I noticed that with Build 3899 Fuji RAF files are now loaded full size in the light table. That is great! Is there a chance that this will also be the case for Leica's DNGs in a future Build?
